Roxana, these images are quite sumptuous. They have lovely color and depth of field.

I especially like the icons in the background.

I recognize the Neo-Assyrian Apkallu diety, and the archers and the lion frieze from Susa, although it looks like you've drawn the latter as horses. Was this a deliberate change?

It is not a horse and not a lion. It is a golden calf fresco drawing from Ishtar gates. The high priestess on the card is a priestess of Ishtar temple.

I had forgotten about the aurochs. For those interested, I've attached images of the Ishtar Gates.

Nice pictures. I've seen the first before. It is a nice reconstruction of the temple.
